Last week’s learning in P.1A

Last week got off to a super start with our trip to Musselburgh Library. We enjoyed walking in the glorious sunshine (including an exciting flyover by a flock of geese!) and listening to our Book Bug bag stories read by Trisha at the library. We chose ‘The Unicorn Expert’ as our favourite.

Here are our snaps:

We were very excited to receive our Book Bug bags on Tuesday, with lots of other fantastic activities in the bag to enjoy. We also welcomed some of the parents and carers to the class on Wednesday to observe and help with our Digital Literacy lesson, and enjoyed decorating invites to our Nativity with our Buddies on Friday. We have been practising our songs every day and will be receiving our ‘parts’ very soon!

Here are our highlights:

I have enjoyed making cakes in the sand- Jay
Reading the Unicorn Expert- Eva
Doing the walk and I liked reading- April
I liked doing the shapes on the screen- Ben
Playing with the sand and making sandcastle- Ethan

Last week’s learning in P.1A

P.1A had another busy week last week in class, and of course there was lots of excitement about the Hallowe’en disco! We enjoyed another fantastic singing session with Moira and had great fun learning a little about karate with Chris, as well as all of our regular learning activities.

Here is a taste of our karate session:

We also thought about our achievements in Literacy and Maths, and chose a target to aim for before the end of term (these will all be uploaded to our Google Classrooms by the end of the week).

Here are our other highlights:

I enjoyed making a Power Ranger with the Sticklebricks- Ethan
Playing with the blocks and making shops- Eva
Making pizza with the playdough- Archie
I enjoyed making kites at the craft table- Eulalie
I have enjoyed everything- Rebecca

P1 Library Visit – Date for your Diary

Primary 1 are invited to visit Musselburgh Library this November.

P1A – Monday 18th November @ 9.00
P1B – Monday 18th November @ 9.45
P1C – Tuesday 19th November @ 9.00

It would be absolutely amazing if we could have as many parents/carers as possible joining us on our visit to support walking to and from the library as well as encouraging our P1s to read for enjoyment.

Please let your child’s class teacher know if you can help 🙂

Last week’s learning in P.1A

Last week P.1A were very excited to see the progress of our beanstalks, with Eulalie’s looking most likely to get us to the giant’s castle! We also had lots of fun playing games with the parachute and hunting for different shapes all around the school (we found that rectangles and circles are the most common shape).

On Friday we also tried our hand at drawing a portrait of our buddies, and we got many wild and wonderful results- check out our photos below:

Here are our highlights:

  • Playing in the doll’s house with Ryan and Harley- Archie
  • I have enjoyed making flags at the craft table- Kailyn
  • Playing with the puppets in the castle- Eulalie
  • I likes playing with the parachute- Parker
  • I liked making Nobby at the craft table, and I enjoyed learning my sounds because that is important and doing maths- April
